to join our system. and the thrust of a terrific book by john ikeen berry we have built this modern international system, this web of networks and associations and groupings and alliances, and everyone -- it's an open system. anyone who wants to join and -- play by the rules can do so. it's still the system that draws people from various parts of the world in to the web that we are at heart of it. whether it's the imf world bank, united nations, nay nato, et. cetera. the rerevised architecture we're building in asia. that's the essence of the competition. at the ends of the, it's exactly what the new yemen president did. he was willing to stand with the united states and do so publicly. and that is the ultimate challenge as jim was saying earlier, you know, mutual interest, mutual respect, i would add to that shared responsibility where we know that to solve any international challenge no one country particularly the united states can do it alone. but, you know, you can't solve the challenges as our former boss hillary clinton said. you can't solve any global challenge without meani

when president bush was pushing very hard, when john mccain was pushing hard. ted kennedy was seeking a lead than immigration reform was defeated by 15 those in the senate or so. so i mean, there's no guarantee it will happen, but the discussion about future election in the growing from latino vote, et cetera, et cetera may be exaggerated. two years ago we were all the 19 are lots of the democrats were on the 19, the republicans were cheering and it looks like the country was going in the other direction. marriage has been defeated. so i wouldn't sort of also take these trends as written and concrete, but certainly they look favorable and a steel love that quote as i can't remember his name on one of the talk shows, it is a great week to be latino. on the rest of latin america, and i think what michael said his rate, but i also think that immigration means more for mexico and central america and the caribbean than it does for the other countries. it's important, but by and large i don't think the election changes very much the equation for south america or brazil. i was looking for so
